A significant number of accidents that occur each year on our nation’s highways involve Hazmat Carriers. These are trucks that haul hazardous materials or waste that can compound injuries to accident victims. These items may include, but not be limited to: gasoline, propane, oil, radioactive materials, industrial chemicals, human waste (from portable toilets), and other similar items.
Each day, nearly one million shipments of hazardous materials go out in the United States. This creates potentially dangerous conditions for many drivers sharing the same roadways with trucks hauling these items. The potential damages of a HAZMAT roadway accident can be devastating. Trucking companies and transport carriers are required to adhere to strict policies and guidelines when hauling hazardous waste and materials and are subject to stiff penalties when not doing so.
